Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jon Runyan (R-NJ) released the following statement regarding the passage of H.R. 41, a bill to temporarily increase the borrowing authority of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for carrying out the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The legislation, of which Congressman Runyan was a co-sponsor, passed 354 to 67.
“I am pleased that the House of Representatives has finally taken this important first step to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. It has been more than two months since the storm made landfall in Southern New Jersey and caused more than $60 billion in damage along the east coast. The additional funds to the NFIP will ensure that the fund does not run out of money and is able to provide assistance to those individuals who have lost everything. With today’s bi-partisan vote, I am hopeful that the second part of the emergency supplemental funding bill will easily pass on January 15th.”
